Oats Pongal

This is a very healthy Pongal or Khichdi. I love experimenting with Oats. My husband also love Oats. So I try to make different dishes with it whenever possible. This is a quick recipe and I prepare this as lunch or dinner whenever I dont have much time. Just put everything in the pressure cooker and your healthy tasty food is ready soon. My little one likes it too as its very mushy and easy to eat , coz he has only few teeth now :)


Oats - 1 cup (I used Quaker oats, old fashioned)
Moong dal - 1/2 cup
Vegetables - 1/2 cup (Its your choice. I used carrots, corn, peas, beans)
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves - 4 to 5
Pepper Powder - 1 tsp (You can even use whole black pepper crushed)
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Asafoetida powder - a pinch
Oil - 1 tsp
Water - 3 cups
Coriander leaves - few strands chopped

Wash and drain the moong dal.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add the cumin seeds. When they finish popping, add curry leaves.
Add the pepper and saute for a few seconds. Now add the oats.
Roast the oats for a few minutes until nice aroma comes.(3-4 mins)
Now add the moong dal and saute for a minute. Add the vegetables and mix well.
Finally add the water, salt , asafoetida, turmeric powder and coriander leaves.Mix well.
Pressure cook for a single whistle.

Serves 2-3
